    My friend and I went together to Pondicherry, but wanted a proper guided tour of Auroville. That's why we decided to stick with Thrillophilia. It was an overall satisfactory experience, I'd say. Nothing unexpected, though. The food was excellent, and we got to interact with a few local artisans too. One major highlight was that our guide, Dev was well versed in English and French, which made the trip richer. The price was also very decent. So if you're picky about budget, this is perfect for you.

    Prashant or Pepe as he prefers to be called, was on the dot when we started the Monument Walk tour at 7am. He gave us a thorough low-down on the history of the city and showed us the various symbols which marked the timeline. He is knowlegeable and detailed in his explanation

    Auroville wasn't built in a day, but we explored it all in one day. Thrillophilia did a great job in introducing us to the best of this place. Murugan, our guide spoke english and french, which amazed me a lot.

    It is definitely a must visit place. The lifestyle was very new and convincing. A lot of things happening at a time. Appreciable settings. Close to nature and well maintained. Very lovely hosts too. Clean and tidy surroundings.
